Muzmatch is an app that brings single Muslims together to find a marital partner. It can be dowloaded onto your phone from the app store or from the website.
People can signup from anywhere though many seem to be located in the United Kingdom, where the owning company is based.
5-Steps to Muzmatch
The app registration has five steps, and in each you'll be prompted to add a little information about yourself, declare your ethnic origin and commitment to your faith.
Profiles must be approved before they go live and before you'll be granted access to most of the services and features.
Once you have access, you can begin swiping other people's profiles immediately. It all works on a swipe to like system.
While you can create a snazzy profile, and look around, you can't view other peoples' photos unless you have one of your own. That's unless that person has explicitly set the public view option in his/her profile.
Your “control panel” gives an instant overview of your activity on Muzmatch, including requests, profile views, messages, and your favorites. It also lists new members on the app.
There are two searches available. A quick search lets you search by gender, age and location. The advanced search allows you to refine your preferences down to exact city of residence, religious sect, commitment to faith, education, profession and physical appearance. Search results show a blurred image of the person's main profile picture, a brief biography, and two flags, one indicating country of residence, and the other indicating ethnic origin.
The basic entry on Muzmatch is free. You can upgrade with either the premium membership or by paying for more swipe credits.
With "selfie verification" and hand moderation Muzmatch has done a lot to try to clean out fake profiles and prevent them getting in. This can only improve the experience of those who genuinely want to find their next wife or husband.
